WATCH IDRIS ELBA PROPOSE TO HIS GIRLFRIEND ON STAGEFebruary 12, 2018
Good news for Idris Elba – and bad for the rest of the free world – as the actor has gotten engaged to model Sabrina Dhowre.
The Luther star popped the question on Saturday in the middle of a screening of his directorial debut film Yardie.
A fan captured the moment where you see the 45-year-old actor drop to one knee holding a ring and later rise to hug his new fiancée.

Elba and Dhowre have been dating since last year and made their first public appearance together at the Toronto Film Festival in September.
This will be the Molly’s Game star’s third marriage as he was previously wed to Hanne Norgaard from 1999 to 2003 and to Sonya Hanklin for four months in 2006.
Elba has a 15-year-old daughter with his first wife and a three-year-old son with ex-girlfriend Naiyana Garth.
Interestingly, just last year Elba told Essence magazine he didn’t think he’d ever marry again by saying: “Marriage is an institution of sorts. And I’ve done it. It’s not for everybody. It’s not my life’s calling.”
Funny what love will make you do!
